Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits NMDA glutamate receptor activity and calcium channel activity. Predicted to contribute to extracellularly glutamate-gated ion channel activity and ionotropic glutamate receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including learning or memory; long-term synaptic potentiation; and response to amphetamine. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease; bipolar disorder; and schizophrenia. Orthologous to human GRIN2A (glutamate ionotropic receptor NMDA type subunit 2A).
